Basic packing cubes allow you to compress your items slightly by squeezing them into the existing cube shape. Extra compression cubes have a secondary zipper that you close once you've filled your packing cube, squeezing more air out and taking up less space in your suitcase
The amount of compression will depend on the number and type of item. Bulky clothing, like jackets and jumpers, or light fabrics, like t-shirts, will compress a lot of air out. Dense items or heavy materials, like jeans, will compress less.
The details of the individual packing cubes are - Small - 27 x 19 x 10 cms, 100 grams; Medium - 37 x 25 x 12 cms, 140 grams; Large - 44 x 34 x 12 cms, 190 grams.
We recommend that you hand wash your cubes with soap and water. Hang them out to line dry. They are extremely lightweight and fold up easily, hardly taking up any room in your case. They can also stay flat as they don't have a rigid construction.
No, the top panel is mesh. The main material though is made from ripstop nylon which is water repellant.
